I could reproduce it on some systems, but it changes when you switch compiler
versions or other flags, or the exact kernel version, so it's impossible
to bisect if you have the same problem that I saw.

I got all the way to the point where I could add a nop instruction in one
file and it would go away because the code size grew across some magic
